A new mural will be added to the impressive collection of nearly 40 murals in Old Town Lompoc during the Mural in a Weekend painting party slated for October 6-7, 2018. Painting for the mural is scheduled for both days, from 8 am to 5 pm, at the back east wall of 100 South H Street in Lompoc.
Created by Master Artist Art Mortimer, the new mural entitled "Chautauqua” will depict the traveling shows that flourished in US at the turn of 19th century (portion of new artwork for mural pictured above)
Residents and visitors are invited to help paint the mural - for a few hours, all day, or both days - alongside Mortimer and artists from the Lompoc Mural Society who will help guide the project.
The mural dedication ceremony is slated for Sunday afternoon, Oct 7 at 5 pm.

You will then receive a wrist band, which will give you access to the mural painting area, and a really cool Mural in a Weekend souvenir pin – our way of saying thanks for painting with us!
Throughout the weekend, Master Artist Art Mortimer – who designed the new mural - will be on hand to give you specific instructions on where to paint, how to paint, and what colors to use.
